How to replace 'wp-admin' with another slug

Hi

I want to replace the 'wp-admin' part in the admin url http://mysite.com/wp-admin with another word, lets say 'dashboard'. Is there a simple way to do this so that I can have urls like
http://mysite.com/dashboard
http://mysite.com/dashboard/edit.php
http://mysite.com/dashboard/users.php

I tried hide-my-wp plugin and that seems a bit cumbersome to manage and messes up site given all the .htaccess rules

I also tried BulletProof Securityplugin, but that breaks a lot of my plugins

Tried HC Custom WP-Admin URL plugin but thats not compatible with the latest version of WP and does not work

Not sure if there is any other option I have.Appreciate your help.

Thanks
